Notes

Bottle, with corks & cages. Notes from previous batch: "Spew"/"Not Spew" test batch. 10/20/2010: Brew day. Achieve 77.77% brewhouse efficiency. Some slight problems (stuck sparge, short on final volume, etc). When pitching, split batch: 3 gal. to J. A. ('spew'), ~2.5 gal. to Gogol ('not spew'). Yeast pitched at ~1430. Set Gogol's fermenter in pantry at ~62 deg F (A. reports his fermentation temp is 60 deg F). Kreuzen observed by 10/23. Kreuzen begins dropping/receding by 10/24. Decision made to forego the secondary, and just keep it in the primary until bottling. 11/8/2010: Bottling day for the 2-gal. (Gogol) batch. Steep 0.5 cup Pilsen DME in ~8oz. boiled water for ~7 minutes. Sanitize equipment, bottles and caps in StarSan. Obtain 12x22oz and 1x12oz bottles, with ~6oz waste/consumed. No FG taken (used calculated FG for Measured FG in brew sheet, above).
